Aim

The aim of the course is to give basic knowledge of complex numbers and linear algebra. The course will also give necessary prerequisites for mathematical treatment of technical problems in future profession and supply a good base for further studies.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • define basic concepts in linear algebra and basic concepts of complex numbers
  • formulate, and in certain cases prove, fundamental theorems in linear algebra
  • solve systems of linear equations by matrix methods
  • find the rank of a matrix
  • add, subtract and multiply matrices
  • decide if a matrix is invertible and, if that is the case, find the inverse
  • solve matrix equations
  • apply the algebra of determinants
  • apply Cramer's rule
  • add and subtract vectors
  • apply scalar and vectorial multiplication of vectors
  • apply her/his knowledge of vectoralgebra to analytic geometry
  • apply the method of least squares
  • carry out calculations with complex numbers
  • solve algebraic equations
  • Content

    Algebra. Trigonometry. Elementary logic. Real numbers. Complex numbers. Systems of linear equations. Matrices. Determinants. Vectors. Method of least squares.
